  • It's not against the law and they can't refuse to sell it. They have no right to do that.

  • It isn't against the law where we live. It shouldn't be an issue as far as I'm concerned.

  • Im just asking if you think its right if there happens to be a cashier who refuses to sell a hpt to a teenager. i know anyone can buy one but if there happens to be a cashier who gives a teen a REALLY hard time about it (like lets say, refuses to sell it to her w/o a parent or guardian) is that right.

  • or rather does the cashier have the right to do that.

    i only ask because while at the store today I saw a young girl trying to purchase a hpt and the cashier was giving her a REALLY hard time about it and he refused to sell it to her w/o her parent or guardian.

  • That cashier was wrong. You do NOT need a parent or guardian to buy an HPT. I would complain to the manager about him.

  • Sounds totally illegal. HPT is not a controlled substance!

  • No, they shouldn't. If the teen is possibly pregnant the deed is already done. Knowing if they are pregnant would be really nice so they can get prenatal care if needed and prepare to deal with what has happened.
